Meet 5 Canadians making a global impact through Compassion’s new online fundraising platform

In 2020, we launched our brand-new, online fundraising platform. We asked Canadians to join us in a goal of raising $100,000 for our COVID-19 relief fund through online fundraisers. And we were blown away by the response—together raising over $105,000! We wanted to introduce you to some of our amazing Canadian fundraisers and give you a peek into the creative ways they set out to bring practical help and hope to children and families in poverty during COVID-19.

Extreme home renovation: Compassion edition
